Vin de France "Kharakter", Domaine le Briseau (Nathalie Gaubicher-Christian Chaussard) 2012

product at this time


Since Christian Chaussard's passing in September 2012, Le Briseau's work has been carried on by his wife and partner, Nathalie Gaubicher. 2012 was the last vintage Christian worked on, so the 2012 Kharakter is somewhat special in that way. It is pretty good, too, really good. 100% Chenin Blanc from a parcel consisting of 45 year-old vines planted in limestone and flint soils in the Coteaux du Loire. As always, the wine was vinified naturally, without additives and no addition of sulphites. The purity and complexity of this Chenin is outstanding. The flavor is uniquely layered with fruity and herbal flavors. Kharakter has a distinctive, expressive character that you must experience.
